What partitions may I delete?
I've installed a Plextor M5P 512 GB ssd in my Tecra R840-16J! I'm very happy with it
I restore the laptop to the factory state using the Recovery DVDs I created before! Now I've 2 copys and a 16 GB USBFlash with an extra copy! So I can restore it to the factory state anytime I want! So I think I do not need the FactoryRecoveryPartition/s in the disk 0!
In my SSD (disc 0) I've 3 partitions created after the recovery (please se the image):
Which of then may I delete...(i know I will not delete C that I renamed as "System")?
Thanks a lot,

If it was me I'd just leave it alone but if you are determined....
Make sure you can absolutely restore to factory condition before you fiddle with disk 0. I would also download free Macrium and image all 3 partitions to an ext HDD. Make sure all your personal data is backed up.
Then, you can delete the last recovery partition and resize C: to the right.
You are booting through your first partition (it is active). You can delete it but you will need to
(1) Delete the first partition
(2) Resize C: to the left
(3) make C: Active
(4) Run Startup repair from a System Repair disk 3 times, booting each time. This will place the required boot files in C:.
I strongly recommend free Partition Wizard Bootable CD for the partition operations.
If you've taken the necessary precautions and things go wrong you should be able to get back to your starting point.
